We had gone to Khasab for the dhow cruise to the fiords but the weather was very windy and the company advised us that it would be too dangerous out on the open sea part of the journey.
We decided to do the half day mountain excursion, we were treated to some of the most stunning views and scenery imaginable. We paid 200 dirhams per person and it was well worth the money. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very careful when driving.
All in all great day and would definitely recommend.

A group of 5 of us when for the overnight dhow trip including snorkeling, dolphin spotting, and camping on the dhow with an arabic mixed grill.

We all had a fantastic trime and could not reccommend enough to do the overnight trip rather than just the daytrip.

The snorkeling at telegraph island exceeded expectations, as did the dhow itself, the boat was large and the 5 of us all slept comfortably under the stars. Zero light pollution meant we were all treated to a fantastic evening of stargazing too.

Mohammed the guide was great, even with limited english and our limited arabic we could communicate fine and he certainly contributed to our great trip. In the morning he even swam down and caught us fresh scallops to try, amazing experience. He was informative, helpful and made us feel welcoming showing us the true Omani hospitality.
I couldn't reccommend the trip enough for UAE residents like us as it's only a few hours drive, such a hidden gem!

There is only one way to see dolphins and that is in the wild. The dhow captain's know their stuff and provide the dolphins with an exciting wash to swim in and all the benefit to us on board - we had about 5 mins with a family of dolphins enjoying the ride alongside our dhow. That plus the swimming and snorkeling on Telegraph Island amongst the splendid scenary made a wonderful day out with great memories.

Too many boats were all doing exactly the same tour, ending up in the same places at the same time. This made the experience less pleasant and less safe than it should have. Barely any fish were seen when snorkelling; from experience there are some fantastic sites to see huge amounts of sea life I don't understand why these are not visited.
However, the guide was informative and the crew attentive.

Hi,

Thank you for having taken your time to provide us with your valuable feedback. All the boats starts almost at the same and end up at telegraph island for snorkeling. Next time we do our best to take you best snorkeling place away from others. Looking forward to seeing you again sooner.

when visiting Khasab in Musandam going on a dhow tour is a must

There are half and full day options: half day (3-4 hrs) is ample. Full day would be boring

Negative comment: viewing dolphins is the main attraction. 2 years ago when doing it first the dolphins were willingly swimming by the side of the boat seemed to be having fun. This time there were 7 boats circling the waters to attract dolphins: kind of forcing them to show themselves. When they eventually showed up, they were swimming very close to each other: I am not an expert, but they seemed scarred of the noise caused by the engines of the boats. This was very disappointing.

I do not believe I would do it again: I am against all forms of artificial animal attractions

Hi,

Thank you for having taken your time to provide us valuable feedback. Sad to hear about the dolphins. Boat captains try their best to show the dolphins to guests. There is a possibility dolphins scared of the Engine noise but this is not intentional from crew. Next time we try to avoid this. Looking forward to seeing you again sooner.
